Boroondara City Council (Council) hereby gives notice of its intention to amend Order No. 1, made under Section 26 of the Domestic Animals Act 1994, to include Recreation Hall Reserve, Kew, in the list of designated dog off-leash reserves, in addition to amending several designated reserve names and suburbs in the current list of designated reserves contained in the Order.

The proposal to add Recreation Hall Reserve to this list responds to demonstrated community interest and support for Recreation Hall Reserve to become formally known as a dog-off leash area.

Changes to boundaries and names of reserves and suburbs have occurred since making of the original Order in 1996. Council proposes to amend the list of designated reserves to reflect these changes.

Council is seeking community feedback on the proposed changes and invites you to comment on this proposal. Read a copy of the Order.

Written submissions must be received at the Council Offices no later than 5.00pm on 31 January, 2018.

Any person who makes a written submission will be informed of the date, time and place of any meeting to hear submissions on this matter.

Submitters should note that all submissions are made available to the public in full (including any personal information). Submissions may be posted on Council’s website.

Details from submissions received, including personal information will also be included in the official Council Agenda and Minutes which are permanent public documents and are also available on Council’s website.
